    Is there any tool out there that will let me see the type, number, and
    size in bytes of objects on the heap in the ASP.Net process?

    Yes, there are a couple tools.

    CLR Profiler [1] can display the heaps and show you the relative
    number and the types on objects on the heap.

    WinDbg [2] with SOS.dll can dump the entire heap, and show you the
    address and type of every object on the heap. Quite powerful, but a
    bit of a leaning curve (not much if you just want to dump the heap).
    Googlel for WinDbg and SOS and you'll find a few tutorials. The most
    recent version from January also includes shortcut commands to dump
    the asp.net cache and other features.
